Finnish heavy melodic death metal unit Wolfheart recently announced the upcoming release of their new full-length Winter War epic, ”Wolves Of Karelia”, out on April 10th, via Napalm Records.
Wolfheart has revealed another fantastic offering cut from ”Wolves Of Karelia”, entitled “Hail Of Steel”. The track signals oncoming war with an ocean-like wave of rhythm and hair-raising guitars, cascading into an extreme, melodic wall of blast-beats and symphonies. Accented by piercing clean vocal harmonics and pummeling double bass, the track sets the grand stage for the entire album. The new music video is equally as searing – a fiery performance fitting for the epic track.
Front-man Tuomas Saukkonen states this about the new music video/song:
“Hail Of Steel” is an embodiment of the fierce chaos of war. The Finnish army had 32 tanks against 3000 Russian tanks, 114 planes against 3800 Russian planes, three times bigger troops, etc., so those Fins really saw steel and fire raining from the sky.”
The album’s lyrical and musical content is inspired by the Winter War waged between Russia and the band’s native country, Finland, which took place during the winter of November 1939-March 1940. Finland ultimately managed to stop the Russian troops from invading their country. Wolfheart mastermind and front-man Tuomas Saukkonen was inspired by the personal stories of local veterans, conveying the tales of what they experienced and survived from their perspectives. Somber, frostbitten and heroic, ”Wolves Of Karelia” portrays these tales with stunning musical precision.
”Wolves of Karelia” will be available in the following formats:
